Itinerary

Day 1: Arrive in Costa Teguise

Arrive in Lanzarote. Taxi from Arrecife Airport to the hotel - 14 km. The rest of the day is free to enjoy the beach resort of Costa Teguise. You will have time to prepare for your leisure cycling trip in Lanzarote. 

Day 2: Costa Teguise – Haria (52 km / 32 miles)

Todays ride from Costa Teguise to the inland town of Haría. En route we have the opportunity to visit Manrique's famous works such as El Jardín de Cactus, Los Jameos del Agua, El Mirador del Río which form an integral part of the volcanic landscape. We also have the opportunity to visit the volcanic cave of La Cueva de los Verdes. We take in fishing villages without losing sight of the impressive Monte Corona. Finally we arrive in the picturesque village of Haría surrounded by its uncountable palm trees. 

Day 3: Haria - San Bartolome (43 km / 28 miles)

From Haría, we take the road down towards Teguise, the one-time capital of the island. Our route gives us spectacular views down over the coast. Teguise itself is a delightful small town with typical architecture and many pleasant bars for refreshment. From here we continue towards San Bartolomé and the fascingating wine-producing area of La Geria to our country hotel where we spend the next two nights. 

Day 4: San Bartolome Loop (50 km / 31 miles)

Today is a free day spent in our rural hotel. We can choose to relax, or enjoy a round ride, or even both. Our round ride takes us towards the beautiful beach of Famara with the spectacular backdrop of volcanic cliffs. After following the coast, we head across extensive lava fields and a lunar landscape back to San Bartolomé. 50 km circuit, but shorter route to Fundación César Manrique or Teguise available. 

Day 5: San Bartolome - Playa Blanca (58 km - 36 miles)

From San Bartolomé we head towards the islands main attraction, the Parque Nacional de Timanfaya. This is where Lanzarote's volcanic nature is at its most spectacular. The eruptions of 1730 - 1736 buried around a quarter of the whole island, including several villages, and gave rise to the impressive lava and volcano landscape that we see today. From here we head down to the south of the island, stopping en route to visit the seaside volcanic crater of El Golfo before we finally reach the seaside village of Playa Blanca.  

Day 6: Playa Blanca Loop (70 km - 43 miles)

Playa Blanca sits at the very south of the island and looks across to Fuerteventura. Today we can take a boat across to Corralejo and enjoy a visit or a ride on another island. Alternatively, we can enjoy a day in Playa Blanca and take the opportunity to visit the nearby coves and beaches of Papagayo, the best on the island and unspoilt by tourism. Another option is to visit El Golfo for a seafood lunch by the beach. Route to El Golfo 36 km - 20 miles. Fuerteventura circuit 70 km - 43 miles.

Day 7: Playa Blanca - Arrecife (47 km / 30 miles)

From Playa Blanca, we head across the dramatic hills of Femés before heading to the wine country of La Geria.Here, the unusual vineyard cultivation techniques have given rise to a fascinating landscape not to be seen anywhere else in the world, and producing some fine wines. We then descend to the coast and  follow  a nice promenade from Puerto del Carmen to Arrecife. 

Day 8: Arrecife

Departure after breakfast.
